I have served on numerous Boards and Chaired many of them over the last few years, including Baton Rouge Area Chamber, the Downtown Development District, American Red Cross, Capital Area United Way and others.

During my tenure, we raised substantial funds, commissioned and subsequently completed very substantial renovations to the physical facility. Membership rose to at or near the maximum.
